"Como un fandango" (tanguillos). This piece was recorded by four Carmona: Pepe, Josemi, Juan and Antonio. The sublimely elegant oud solo by Juan Carmona has been transcribed for the second guitar. The piece can be played as a duo or a guitar solo. Priceless for a guitarist who wishes to learn this difficult form.
"Tres colores" (bulería). An extraordinary example of collaboration between all four Carmona involved in this project. Three powerful guitars by Pepe, Juan and Josemi as well as intricate percussion by Antonio. Each guitarist, with his own manner of feeling the music, the falseta, the compás, etc.. Three guitarists, so different and at the same time so united in their ancestral flamenco sensibility. And all three, infinitely elegant. An excellent source of falsetas and compás in three different tonalities and styles.
"En el Grec” (seguiriya). This guitar solo recorded live at the Grec festival is a great reference for any guitarist who wants to learn this form, since Pepe Habichuela is considered one of the best players of the seguiriya. This piece is very authentic and rhythmically sophisticated. Most of it is played to the steady compás that goes faster than usual.
"Yerbagüena (Occidente)" (rumba). This rumba is very similar to the one that opens the CD, but the arrangement of the second guitar that is very different. This arrangement is a testament to Josemi's powerful imagination, as well as his extraordinary arranger's skills. In this version the maestro's son interprets the melody of the verse on the mandola, with unbelievable elegance and sensibility. This solo has been transcribed for the second guitar.
